    Basically, TxK is Tempest 2014 for PS Vita, with some new elements. And this is great.

    Though it plays it safe in terms of mechanics, TxK is challenging and thrilling throughout. It's a treat for anyone who enjoyed any previous version of Tempest, and it's especially worthwhile if you missed out on Tempest 2000.

    I found this to be a visually interesting, dynamic game, but not an especially engaging one.

Turn up the music to 200%, put on headphones and get lost in the experience. It's really hard to put into words how good this game is. At last my Vita is being used. In fact I'd buy a Vita just to play this. Full Review »
